Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840), peintre des fleurs, consacra toute sa vie à l'observation et à la représentation des plantes en fleurs pour composer des planches à l'aquarelle ensuite gravées sur cuivre et publiées avec une description botanique rigoureuse. Chéri des riches mécènes parisiens, notamment de Joséphine Bonaparte, il était surnommé le «Raphaël des fleurs» et est toujours considéré comme un maître de l'illustration botanique.
Cetta anthologie reprend notre fameuse édition format XL dans un volume plus petit et plus maniable. Elle rassemble ainsi certaines de ses plus belles gravures en couleur issues des illustrations de Roses, Liliacés et Choix des plus belles fleurs et quelques branches des plus beaux fruits de Redouté. Offrant un exemple éloquent du talent merveilleux avec lequel Redouté sut combiner précision scientifique et beauté, l'ouvrage permet aussi une vision privilégiée des serres et jardins luxuriants d'un Paris disparu.

A long-awaited updated edition of the 2009 definitive monograph, Beatrix Farrand: Garden Artist, Landscape Architect chronicles the life and work of one of the most important figures in American landscape architecture.
Beatrix Farrand, the only female founder of the American Society of Landscape Architects, is one of the most important landscape architects of the early twentieth century. Today the scope of her work and her influence on the profession are widely acknowledged, and her gardens are being studied, restored, and opened to the public.
Born into a prominent New York family (she was Edith Wharton's niece), Farrand designed lavish gardens for the leaders of society, including the Harknesses, the Rockefellers, and the Blisses. Ultimately, her portfolio extended to college and university campuses, including Princeton, Yale, and the University of Chicago, and public gardens, the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden and the Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden among them. Her best-known design is the landscape at Dumbarton Oaks in Washington, D.C., originally a private residence with extensive grounds and now a research center for Harvard University surrounded by a naturalistic park restored and maintained by the National Park Service. Deeply influenced by the English garden designer Gertrude Jekyll, Farrand was known for broad expanses of lawn with deep swaths of borders planted in a subtle palette of foliage and flowers. In her public work, she adapted this design strategy to create paths and plantings that define the character of the space and the hecirculation through it.
Heavily illustrated with archival images and photographs of her gardens at their peak-many taken especially for this book, Beatrix Farrand: Garden Artist, Landscape Architect also displays beautiful watercolor wash renderings of her designs, now preserved at College of Environmental Design of the University of California at Berkeley. The new edition includes updated images that reflect the current state of gardens including the Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden at the New York Botanical Garden, the International House Courtyard at the University of Chicago, Garland Farm (Farrand's last home and garden, which has recently been restored), Dumbarton Oaks, Dumbarton Oaks Park (which was not included in the first edition), among others.
The book concludes with a comprehensive list of Farrand's commissions and the gardens open to the public, providing direction for further study and exploration. It also features a new preface outlining the milestones in research since the first edition's publication, updated details about ownership and renovations of many properties, and a revised bibliography including articles and books published over the past ten years.
Published to coincide with the 150th anniversary of Farrand's birth and written by landscape historian and preservation consultant Judith B. Tankard, Beatrix Farrand: Garden Artist, Landscape Architect takes readers on a tour of Farrand's finest works, celebrating her influence on succeeding generations of women landscape architects.

Monet fait jaillir la couleur, fait vibrer sa toile. Délaissant le détail, il peint des émotions, des impressions. Par dérision, sa peinture est qualifiée «d'impressionniste». Après Bougival, Louveciennes, Argenteuil... il est toujours en quête d'un lieu où poser pinceaux et chevalet, un havre de paix, un jardin de fleurs. Ce sera Giverny pour lequel il se fait jardinier, paysagiste, architecte, coloriste. Son jardin se confond avec sa peinture, ses fleurs deviennent sa palette. En contrebas, de l'autre côté de la route, il acquiert ce qui deviendra son «Jardin d'eau». Sur l'étang, il édifie un «pont japonais» et fait pousser des nymphéas... Le jardin de Giverny, reflet de sa passion et de son génie, est devenu un des jardins les plus connus au monde.

Orchids have long held a place of esteem and fascination in the horticultural world. In the 19th century, orchid collecting reached new fanatical heights, with explorers dispatched to every corner of the globe in search of new varieties that could be auctioned at extravagant prices, and orchids are still one of the most popular flowers to breed and buy to this day. These beautiful, diverse flowers are one of the two largest families of flowering plants, with over 30,000 species and over 181,500 hybrids and cultivars.
The RHS Orchid Committee have commissioned watercolours of over 7,000 award-winning hybrids that demonstrate particular value in their fabulous array of colours, patterns, sizes and shapes. Through these paintings, stories of high stakes orchid breeding and exhibiting are explored, with a cast of characters who helped shape the horticultural world we know today, alongside the dedicated artists who still support their endeavours.
